Me and my large family coinsiting of 6 adults (one of which is 16) and a 12,10,8 and a 7 year old. We all enjoiyed our stay in Le Bois de Valmarie in peak season. We had previously stayed at l'hippocampe and la sirene and they were brilliant so we all had high expectations. The 2 caravans that we had... More

The best thing about this site is the pool complex. Set into the hillside with views of the mountains and beach it has slides, waterfalls and jacuzzi jets, so lots to do and our kids (4 and 8) loved it. The lifeguarding is fairly hands-off but this made parents take responsibility for their kids which wasn't a bad thing. The... More

We stayed here for one week at the beginning of August. This was the second leg of our holiday in France, and we had arrived here following four nights at Disneyland Paris. We were a party of five: myself and my wife, our seven year old son, and my wife's parents. We were determined to have a car-free and therefore... More

My first impressions were not favourable. Having spent last 2 years at Sant Angelo in Italy, our first thought was that the pools are smaller than they appear in the photo, and the little hamlet of Racou was just a back street with a few cafes. Oh how wrong those first impressions can be. Racou is charming - an authentic... More

We have stayed here for 10 years, but unfortunately the site has started to fade and certainly no longer merits a 5 * rating. On-site shop and restaurant remain excellent, probably because they are not owned/run by the site. Main reception staff are efficient with one exception who clearly does not want to be there. Areas of concern include an... More

Have just returned from 10 nights at the site. We booked with Eurocamp and the pitch was ideal for us as we were next to one of the play areas. With two young kids (seven and four) this was ideal as they were able to play and meet other kids. The fact that our pitch was quite near the fence... More

Just returned from a very enjoyable 11 day stay at the site with two other families. Children's ages 5 to 15 (mostly teenagers). We stayed with Keycamp as we wanted a 3 bed caravan and our friends both had 2 bed vans with Lifestyle. It is a quiet site certainly compared to its sister site La Sirene at the top... More

Staff were great & helpful, but site itself extremely poor and limited. Hilly & loads of concrete roads, no grass for kids to play ball games. Good pool but activities beyond that far too limited - basically just table tennis (and right alongside a wire fence, through which any stray ball required a 10 min round trip to retrieve). Playground... More

We have recently returned from this site and were quite disappointed with our stay. As has been said before the site is quiet and activities very limited although there is a kids club which we didnt use (its run from a tent in the playpark). We found the site quite cramped and arranged quite randomly (probably necessitated by the hill)... More

This was our first "camping" holiday and we (two adults a four year old and a one year old) really enjoyed it. Small, clean site close to a lovely beach and the pools, water slides etc are great for kids. We chose it because reviews suggested that it was quieter than its sister sites and we're not disappointed (it probably... More
